A lovely long weekend with the family in lovely Tallinn.
Some snaps from around the capital: old town view, the Linnahall, Patarei Sea Fortress and Seaplane museum.
A beautiful late afternoon walk at Blickling Hall.
Family pic (thanks awesome Aunty Fay!)
and a nearly family picture capturing the boys.
Some monochrome too.
Surfing lessons at Constantine. H was rather good.
If you look closely, you can see his stance!
I managed to stand once, or twice, but you’ll need to take my word for it…
Finn finds a sand dune…
…que jumping off the sand dune.
Watching the world sail by.
Admiring the view
High speed trips around the bay (maybe later)
The best theatre seats in the world? Probably.
Eden. Again :-). Slightly older than Harvey. We first visited when he was under one and the site was just struggling out of the mud stage.
Chris & Kim have a new toy. Relaxing Fun.
A wonderful break and the ever-lovely White Hut. Fantastic winter views (although not as stormy as the last visit).
“Yikes!” said Finn. “You haven’t posted any pictures from our amazing summer holiday with Amza and Felix?”
“Grab a pole. Each.”
“Pile up some stones. High.”
“And chill. For a while.”
We (all of us) took the slow train to Pontarfynach.
To see the waterfalls at Devils Bridge.
Which involved climbing steps.
Lots of steps.
And climbing over iron bridges.
But they were rather pretty.
The train was pretty epic too.
A most marvellous walk from the Farm House (a most excellent last-minute find from lovely Fay) to “the city” as F called it, or Llangrannog to the rest of the world.
For such a long distance hike many rest stops were required.
But the destination was well worth the effort.
After a long afternoon making the most of it…
..the fish (fresh from Mortehoe) were slow-cooked on the BrillBarbie
Late starting and very slow, so the boy’s snugged down for the evening.
But it was well worth it. Super dinner and the perfect end to a lovely break down in Woolacombe with the FabFour™
A bit of Sculpture-Culture at Broomhill hotel and gardens. Absolutely top grub too.
Woolacombe when the summer arrived. Busy, but nicely busy.
F (doesn’t he look like H?) waiting for that perfect wave (it arrived, two days later).
Windy walk almost ended with us being blown off the ridge to Ram Head Chapel.
I think someone found a fishing net.
It was a *long* drag home.
The second-best bath view in the world. The first is obviously the pacific from La Push (although there’s no published pictures of that one ;-))
First job at the hut, scout the cliff path to the beach. Steep, slippy and in places ‘hairy’ too. Time to beach: boys 10 mins; adults 17.5 mins; Ewok 30 seconds.
“I see no ships”.
Except the dive boats above HMS Scylla.
A very proper walk. And good aerobic training going back up.
The termite installation.
The vertical drop.
Both at Escot.
Breakfast (fried!) at Ducky’s, Chapple’s or Kenno’s cafes on Beer Beach
(I canna remember which captain).
Dog friendly Hurst Castle for the day: a mile-and-a-half walk from Milford-on-Sea along the spit (with a hello to Norman and Zoë along the way).
Ewok slept well.
